Golem & Environmental Encroachment

When: Wed., Jan. 5, 9 p.m. 2011

Contrary to popular belief, Golem is neither a towering Jewish Frankenstein who defended the Jews of 17th Century Prague, nor a creature from Lord of the Rings. Golem is a 6 piece Eastern European folk-punk band. Young, hip widely acclaimed New York-based GOLEM transforms the music of its Jewish grandparents, making it modern, edgy, sexy and brash. Their explosive onstage attitude gets Klezmer to rock.

Price: $12-15
